Land, oceans and water for climate action

Assessing the impacts of climate change to our land and marine environments, natural resources, as well as, in agriculture and food systems, and identifying mitigation options and adaptation pathways, requires interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research and investments across a broad range of activities. It also requires research to better understand who or what is exposed and sensitive to these changes, their underlying vulnerability, the associated costs and adaptive capacity, as well as research on mitigation options that reduces the risk of long-term climate change.
